privacy mode

creates privacy mode browsing session: (nothing stored on disk)

1. go to your application data\k-meleon folder

2. open profiles.ini (in notepad)

3. create new profile e.g:
[Profile1]
Name=privacy
Path=privacy
IsRelative=1

4. no need for default entry, because the main profile will always be default, save file

5. IMPORTANT! after saving the file, right-click on it, choose properties and change attributes to read-only.

6. create privacy(profile) folder \Application Data\K-Meleon\privacy

7. copy all files from your default folder to your new privacy folder(so you don't need to customise your preferences and settings from scratch)


save to k-meleon's macros folder.
# K-Meleon Macros (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php?id=MacroLanguage)

# ----------launch k-meleon in privacy mode---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# Dependencies : main.kmm (Go)
# Resources : -
# Preferences : -
#
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


privacymode{
menu = "Privacy Mode";
exec("G:\\applications-x\\KMplus\\k-meleon.exe -new -P privacy");
}

privacymodelink{
menu = "Privacy Mode";
exec("G:\\applications-x\\KMplus\\k-meleon.exe -new -P privacy " . $LinkURL);
}

privacymode_BuildMenu{

# tools menu
# link context
setmenu("&Tools",inline,_privacymode_Page,WebServices);
setmenu(_privacymode_Page,macro,"Privacy Mode",privacymode);
setmenu(LinkSave,macro,"Privacy Mode..",privacymodelink);
}


$OnInit=$OnInit."privacymode_SetAccels;privacymode_BuildMenu;";

# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$macroModules=$macroModules."privacymode;";



9.IMPORTANT!
change this path in macro: G:\\applications-x\\KMplus\\k-meleon.exe
to where your kmeleon is installed. save macro with your path.

10. fire kmeleon, launch privacy mode from either tools menu/or link contextmenu

11. PRIVACY SETTINGS: in privacy mode instance, open preferences
privacy security>history> uncheck keep a list, unckech enable history plugin
urlbar history> uncheck keep a list
cache> uncheck cache files on disk, uncheck cache website icons
(i.e. edit browsing preferences to whatever you deem as private/secure.. e.g clear automatically all data at shutdown etc)
IMPORTANT!kmeleon plugins>macro extensions>uncheck privacymode.kmm

12. interface: in privacy mode instance, open preferences:
gui appearance> general> window title: type privacy mode in buffer
(you can also use a different skin for that profile..or same skin with different colours etc)

Complicated. If I saw correctly, Aurora has privacy mode also. And you can enable it with 1 click.

Am I correct?

yes, arora has built-in privacy mode.. this is an alternative way to surf with privacy in kmeleon. it's not very complicated; basically just creating a second profile with more privacy settings and launching it from within the default instance.

there's a problem with privacy mode in that if you have already launched privacy mode and privacy mode profile window is running and then you retured back to the main window/profile and try to launch privacy mode again; you will get an error :"the selected profile can't be loaded..already in use.." and kmeleon will proceed to launch the profile manager dialog.

a work around this is by using a simple autoit script to check if privacy mode profile is running or not and executes the command accordingly


extract in kmeleon's folder(privacymode.exe goes in the tools folder|privacymode.kmm in the macros folder)

macro:
# K-Meleon Macros (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php?id=MacroLanguage)

# ----------launch k-meleon in privacy mode---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# Dependencies : main.kmm (Go)

$_tool_path=getfolder(RootFolder)."\\Tools";
$_km_path=getfolder(RootFolder)."\\k-meleon.exe";
$_pr_path=getfolder(RootFolder)."\\k-meleon.exe -new -P privacy";

privacymode{
menu = "Privacy Mode";
exec($_tool_path."\\privacymode.exe \"".$_km_path."\" \"".$_pr_path."\" " . $URL);
}

privacymodelink{
menu = "Privacy Mode";
exec($_tool_path."\\privacymode.exe \"".$_km_path."\" \"".$_pr_path."\" " . $LinkURL);
}

privacymode_BuildMenu{

# tools menu
# link context
setmenu(PrivacySecurity,macro,"Privacy Mode",privacymode,0);
setmenu(LinkSave,macro,"Privacy Mode..",privacymodelink);
}


$OnInit=$OnInit."privacymode_SetAccels;privacymode_BuildMenu;";

# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$macroModules=$macroModules."privacymode;";



autoit src:

#NoTrayIcon
#Include <String.au3>

$Pmode=(" -new -P privacy ")
$ExPar=_StringInsert($Pmode, $CmdLine[3], -1)

if WinExists("[REGEXPTITLE: PRIVACY-MODE]", "") Then
ShellExecute($CmdLine[1], $CmdLine[3])

else
ShellExecute($CmdLine[1], $ExPar)
EndIf
exit


IMPORTANT! in privacy mode the window titlebar must be named:' PRIVACY-MODE ' cause that's how the script checks if p-m profile is running
in privacy mode, open preferences(F2)
GUI appearance>window tile: PRIVACY-MODE

EXTRA: special proxy file for privacy mode:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
{
// variable strings to return
var proxy_yes = "PROXY 194.36.10.154:3128";
var proxy_yes = "DIRECT";
if (shExpMatch(url, "127.0.0.1")) { return proxy_yes; }
if (shExpMatch(url, "*www.*")) { return proxy_yes; }
if (shExpMatch(url, "*.*")) { return proxy_yes; }
if (shExpMatch(url, "https://*";)) { return proxy_yes; }
if (shExpMatch(url, "ftp://*";)) { return proxy_yes; }
if (shExpMatch(url, "gopher*")) { return proxy_yes; }
return proxy_yes;
}


this uses a highly-anonymous codeen proxy..so not only your surfing doesn't leave any tracks on your pc but more importantly you don't leave any tracks on www.. like google won't be able to identify you or trace your ip.

save privacy.pac in root c:\
in privacy mode profile preferences, proxy> new configuration>
name configuration: privacymode
use the following url: file:///c|/privacy.pac
then select new privacy proxy from tools>proxy

privacymode update, user no longer required to make new profile or fiddle with profiles.ini.. autotits will detect if privacymode has been set or not, if not will create neew privacy profile with same settings as your main profile(same skin, options etc) only with cache disabled(no disk or meory caching) and no history and no urlbar history..and titlebar wll be called 'privacy-mode'

additionally if user changes settings in main profile or skin etc or wprivacymode mode profile got corrupted for whatever reason, user can easily fix or update the privacymode with changes from their main profile(privacymode settings for cache and history will not be affected)

last time
don't load Privacy Mode

pref.js - - >

user_pref("kmeleon.display.title", "PRIVACY-MODE");
user_pref("kmeleon.plugins.macros.modules.privacymode.load", false);

Any ideas what happened?

(if delete "privacymode" profile, - working...)

p.s. Thank you, for this great tool.

@ disrupted:
Check to fix this difference in identical functions:
func createpriv2()
FileSetAttrib ($profileini, "-R")
Iniwrite($profileini, "Profile2", "Name", "privacymode" )
Iniwrite($profileini, "Profile2", "Path", "privacymode" )
Iniwrite($profileini, "Profile2", "IsRelative", "1" )
FileSetAttrib ($profileini, "+R")
makepriv()
endfunc

func createpriv3()
FileSetAttrib ($profileini, "-R")
Iniwrite($profileini, "Profile3", "Name", "privacymode" )
Iniwrite($profileini, "Profile3", "Path", "privacy" )
Iniwrite($profileini, "Profile3", "IsRelative", "1" )
FileSetAttrib ($profileini, "+R")
makepriv()
endfunc

But I don't think this solved km2 problem.

no i don't think that's the problem..this just checks the location of privacymode profile in the profiles.ini so must be kept 'privacymode'. what happened is the privacy profile got corrupted and because the command is specifically calling it to use that profile it didn't launch. km2, if that happens again, simply go to edit>configuration>update privacymode and that should fix it.

there's a script i use before running kmeleon which auto detects if the main profile got corrupted(missing prefs or mangled up prefs.js) and if true..it automatically restores profile from a backup before it runs kmeleon..ensuring kmeleon will always run a good main profile and avoids creating a new profile.. i think i can use same script before launching privacy mode to check for the integrity for prefs and not just f the profile folder exists or listed in profiles.ini
